It’s perfectly normal and okay to feel happy for others and their successes, but at the same time also feel crappy about your own “less-than-successes”. I’ve missed out on and lost a lot in my life and you bet I feel pain when I see someone get something I want but couldn’t have or can’t have yet. I always try to remind myself that it’s okay if I don’t feel 100% happy for them. That doesn’t make me a bad person, it just makes me a person.
